New From The Parlor Mob
I caught the Parlor Mob play the very compact Mercury Lounge back in 2008, as an opener for The London Souls. There weren't too many in the room but a few minutes into the first song, it felt as if I was in Madison Square Garden circa 1975.
This band was gargantuan in every way. Their riffs, their attack, their drum sound. Everything reminded me of all the bands I loved and missed- Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath. They pulled it off.
I bought the full length debut and was not disappointed. Today's Song Of The Day is from that first LP. Following their second effort, 2011's "Dogs," the New Jersey band took a break after relentlessly touring and now new music surfaces after a three year wait. Check it out.
The new record, "Cry Wolf" gets released this fall. Catch them if you can.
